A fundraising initiative has been set up to help Hannah Falvey, a little  two and a half  year old girl from Annascaul with a rare condition which makes her unable to communicate with anybody.  With the help of an Eye Gaze Computer, Hannah will be given the gift of communication. This computer costs in the region of E12,000 and Hannah has been tested and is a perfect candidate to benefit from it.       Two family friends are undertaking A 70km fundraising walk and there are sponsorship cards in all the local business premises where you can contribute. Also you can make a donation and read more about Hannah’s story on website   –
Wishing Nancy, Brendan, Lily and all the Falvey family success in this venture to enable Hannah to engage with her family and the world around her into the future. Please support
